Adrian Gonzalez hit a towering solo home run to right field for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the third inning of Wednesday's NLCS Game 5. It broke a 2-2 tie, was the first Dodgers homer of the series and it came with a Mickey Mouse celebration.

As Gonzalez trotted back to the Dodgers dugout, he put his hands to his helmet to give himself Mickey Mouse ears. That, of course, is a reference to Monday's Game 3 when Gonzalez celebrated a double and Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright complained after the game about Gonzalez doing "Mickey Mouse stuff."

Gonzalez countered by pointing that L.A. is the home of Mickey Mouse (technically, Mickey's house is in Toontown, but whatever). My colleague David Brown countered by making this:

Gonzalez hit another homer in the eighth inning to finish his day 3-for-4 with three runs and two RBIs. He was the star of the L.A. offense in the team's 6-4 win Wednesday. This time around, the Cardinals didn't sound too perturbed. And Gonzalez said this is the last of the Mickey Mouse saga.
